Stolen code rewarded by Automattic, rip off for customers
By , for WP 4.2.3

We recently faced a fairly tough challenge to migrate an existing WordPress membership site. We bought WooMemberships and WooSubscriptions.

WooCommerce Memberships is one of the worst memberships plugin in the WordPress ecosphere. Not only is it overpriced itself reqiures another three plugins to work at all usefully (Subscriptions plus Paypal Pro gateway). What's worse is Woo's gateway doesn't even allow recurring payments.

So we are talking about the MOST expensive solution with the LEAST functionality.

WooCommerce may work well for other physical product (we did not test it this time as an estore) but their Membership and Subscription functionality is exceptionally weak (it does not support even basic Paypal recurring payments).

BACKGROUND (we found out about the history after trying the plugins: the history did not influence our thoughts on the technical issues)

For those who are not aware, Woo ripped off a company called Jiggosoft to steal their lead product, Jiggoshop (after more than a year of intensive development). Woo paid Jiggosoft nothing. This is a policy of GPL ripoffs encouraged by Matt Mullenweg with his all GPL all the time policy.

Matt Mullenweg's company Automattic then bought WooCommerce for $20 million as a clear signal that this kind of piracy is encouraged in the WordPress ecosphere.

We found about the back history (stolen code) after buying. Just on principle, I would avoid rewarding this kind of privateering of other companies hard work.

I'm a WordPress developer and I endorse this plugin as an awesome eCommerce solution :)
